Between family and politics, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown is on the run

In a day that starts with a 9 a.m. speech at a housing conference and ends at nearly 9 p.m. after meeting with soldiers and a college president, Maryland Lt. Governor Anthony Brown still has time to help with his son’s math homework.

That’s because part of his 12-hour, official schedule is a block of “family time.” It’s from 3:15 to 6 p.m. on this particular day.

If those few hours weren’t carved out between a staff meeting in Annapolis and a speech before teachers’ union leaders, Brown says, “It wouldn’t happen. If you don’t schedule, budget it, you end up saying, ‘Where’s the family time?'”

And with a daughter who just started college, a 12-year-old son, and a new 13-year-old stepson, Brown can relate to Marylanders juggling complexities of families and demanding careers.

Of course, not everyone is quite as booked as Brown, who is running for Governor and faces a primary challenge before the November 2014 general election.

As if the boys’ travel sports weren’t enough to keep him busy.
